to congress. rick from michigan, republican. caller: your guests represent two different points of view. i do not want one guy to speak to me at all. the one problem in the government is the federal reserve. we have been under the thumb of the reserve from 1913. these people are running the economy. obama cannot do anything. the congress has given up their constitutional responsibility. we need to redo this whole thing. the system is broke. we pay a gasoline tax. that is supposed to pay all the road costs. we're paying too much tax as it is. we need to eliminate the federal income tax. the others need to be looked at. we have to look at the monetary system. if you print another $447 billion -- we are broke. host: does get reaction. what did you think about his comments? -- let's get reaction. guest: he doesn't want me to talk because i do not agree with this point of view. one of the big problems of the federal reserve is that it is not doing as much as it could be doing to fight the recession. you have ben bernanke doing a lot of pretty aggressive moves. he has not done big quantitative easi
. that could be tragic. >> and of course perry will not win wisconsin or minnesota. he won't win michigan. he wouldn't win pennsylvania. he wouldn't win new jersey. he wouldn't win any of these swing states. >> he's not a blue state guy. no doubt about it. >> all right. mike murphy, stay with us. george pataki -- >> thank you. >> thank you so much for being here. come back soon if you will. >> sure will. >> all right. >> he's in the green room. >> we have standing by former president alvero rebay of colombia to discuss this week's united nations summit. also joining him the president of georgia and nbc chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell. up next former governor jennifer granholm and her husband with their new book. also "the washington post" eugene robinson. you're watching "morning joe" brewed by starbucks.

wants to put romney away. >> we also had another straw poll from michigan this morning and i think it was 50% -- more than 50% here. 50.9%. the mackinaw straw poll, rick perry 16.8%. mitt romney runs away with it now. he's basically the hometown boy in michigan. his father was governor there and this is activist republicans, romney's a very familiar name. is there anything we should read into any of these straw polls? >> you don't want to overinterpret straw polls. 600 or 700 people in michigan voting in that, 400 or 500 in florida. the races continue to be unsettled. i think what we've learned this weekend is that there's going to be an extended fight between mitt romney and rick perry. they both have some strength. they both have a considerable amount of money, we think, the ability to raise money. and neither of them have closed the deal. that's what i take away from this weekend. >> mitt romney has been an incredibly lucky candidate. when he was coasting along as the front-runner, in the spring and summer the other candidates didn't want to engage too much with one another. the
, thank you for calling. caller: i am concerned here in michigan with the layoffs, the $300 million deficit, and they appointed two emergency financial managers. there seems to be waste and fraud and abuse in accountability. i would like to see how no child left the chat -- no child left behind enforced in court and not left to the states. host: so your state is not up to the challenge? caller: that is correct. host: can you give us more specifics? caller: we have a lot of administrators, a superintendent, with the governor that has recently left office, she had controlled for years. they took out almost $1 billion but still we maintained a deficit. the should have file for bankruptcy protection and we would not be in this situation. it does not make sense for kids to go to school and not have supplies and toilet paper. it was a bunch of nonsense. host: the ranking member of the education committee had this to say about obama's decision when it came to the waivers. president obama's efforts represent a dramatic shift -- again, waivers being offered to states to come up with their ow

away their money. host: let's go to griffin, independent in michigan. caller: i keep hearing about the secretary of warren buffett. i do taxes. i figure if the secretary has a standard deduction, she would have to have an income of 90,000 a year. that would equal his 17.4%. using the word secretary, which is 50,000 on average at best in michigan and using that as an example is very disingenuous. i would like to hear it stop. host: we have a comment on twitter. echoing a the sentiments of a caller a moment ago. caller: i think it is unfair as far as the taxes that the rich pay, which is really nothing. i do not know if anyone has ever watched, because my grandkids watched the sweet 16 parties. it is nothing for them to spend $100,000 for their kids parties and then on top of that really expensive cars. the rich do not fight wars. their children do not go to fight wars. they should pay extra, because we are making them safe and allowing them to have their free will and the expense of the lives. and they can appear -- paid $20,000 for a pair of shoes. it is unfair. that could be a sal
punished big states like michigan and florida for putting their presidential primaries too early? well, republicans are trying to get tough, too. their party rules will strip half the delegates from any state besides the traditional early birds, iowa, new hampshire, south carolina and republicans went ahead and added nevada this time. that go before march 6th. the time that they want to dedicate super tuesday. but we already have arizona jumping. they jumped the deadline. they set its primary for february 28th. florida is currently slated in their law for january 31st and a handful of other states that also want to share the early state spotlight. josh putnam is a political science professor at davidson college. he runs a great blog, front loading hq.com. and, of course, mark murray is the deputy nbc news political director. all right. i got to start with you, josh because mark and i have to make our holiday plans, okay? so let's begin. we do know this. the arizona decision does mean one thing. it means that iowa at least will be some time in the middle of january at the earliest. is t
island, michigan where he was competing in that state's romneyesque straw poll. >> there may be slicker candidates and smoother debaters. i know what i believe in. i will stand on that belief every day. i will guide this codeep, deep rudder. >> mitt romney handily beat perry in his former state of michigan where his father was governor and romney grew up. beat perry by 34 points. they know if romney this is nominee, their state may be in play. there was a sympathetic play on perry's bad 96 hours came from somebody who had to deal with bad debate performances before with clients, that was mary madeline. what she said on abc. >> rick perry is not the best debater. he has to say, i may have the worst debate record but the best jobs record. if you're a president, you're called on to decide, not to debate. >> that is the message team perry is hoping they can get in the next few weeks but a sure sign a poor debate performance will be hard for perry to debate. it's already been spoofed in the season premier of "saturday night live". >> was it was he was before border control? >> that concludes
be much more difficult for governor perry to put into play. michigan being one of them. i mean, governor romney is one of his home state, place where his dad was governor, three-term governor, place where he has a really great connection to. if we can put a couple of those states like michigan, wisconsin, put indiana back into play, that's going to make the map a very, very difficult for this white house. >> when it comes to the primary campaign, though, there's been some speculation about how serious you guys are going to compete in iowa. how serious you're going to compete in iowa. >> we're going to play in iowa. the governor will be back there several times campaigning. there will be debates in iowa where we'll be competing in all those debates. this race is -- one thing we've seen, it is a very fluid race and we've seen numbers bouncing around all over the place. we're going to be available and ready to campaign at any state and in order to get the nomination. >> you brought up the general election. i want to play this ad that you guys have out on perry this morning and ask you about
's already another case pending in the supreme court. that is one that came out of michigan, the sixth circuit court of appeals, which said the obama care is fine, they upheld the law. so now you have potentially two cases. it would seem very likely then that the supreme court would take the case up this term. >> does it matter which case they take up? i mean, i guess it matters in the case of do you defend or do you go against the one decision or defend what are the court rulings. >> my guess is that the supreme court would take both of them and do what they call consolidating them. in other words, sort of roll them all up into one big ball and say let's look at both decisions here. now, by the way, we're assuming that the supreme court would take the case. let me just say -- >> why wouldn't they? >> there are other cases pending. there's one in washington in the federal circuit. there's sort of a late to the party issue here, which is is the way to look at this say it's a tax and if p there is a tax, there's a federal law that says you can't challenge a law that would -- >> delay to

. romney won in michigan. do you think his candidacy is fading? >i don't know. the pundits will tell you better than i. keep in mind, the press wants a battle, so they are going to knock down who is aead or the woman behind. some of these candidates positions trouble me to not believe in science is just ridiculous. then to accuse perry of doing something wrong with a vaccine. he probably did what's right. to accuse romney of doing something wrong with alth care in massachusetts. 's really the only change that has worked. they seem to be aad at t moment. they both have things i agree with and things i don't agree with. >> has anything changed your view about the nee for a third party and do you think it's viable in this leadership climate? >> a third party candidate is not a viable candidate. i'm not going to be one. if somebody wants to run, if it's going to get you on the ballot, it's good for democracy. the public tends to vote with one of the two major parties. >> will you endorse a candidate? >> probably not. i'm going to work with who ever wins. i have an obligation to do what is ri

this is a special part of the country for me. i actually can recall the big four carriers on lake michigan. nice to see them from time to time. they pulled iron from the north throughout the entire region. one that manufactured oils such as building cars, tractors, trucks and machinery, so did the ship errs, miners and support industries. as a result of the great lakes area, it it flourishes really was a good lesson in how we've come to learn to need each other. that is industry from the states and throughout interdependent. clearly, job retention and job creation are foremost in everyone's minds today. of our president, to the state capital, jobs are the most pressing need. i give you my view on this issue, speaking as the ceo for the company and i do serve on a number of our corporate boards. one of the ways we enhance the value of said 10 to our shareholders is too careful allocation of capital. so we must provide capital businesses that can escrow. the growth is either limited or declining. we have to make discipline investments. and generally, only the very best projects go forward. they're
alters tone and tactics." here is one twitter message -- host: doreen, clinton township, michigan. caller: first off, i will vote for president obama. i think he is the most connected president we have ever had. second of all, i am sick and tired of people blaming him for this mess. he did not create this mess, congress created this mess. those people, spending our money, which they should not have been, i think that he needs to get tougher. mr. boehner is nothing but a pompous idiot. he did nothing to help our president. i am sick and tired of what is happening in congress. host: we are running out of time. i will jump in ike -- i will jump in here so that we can get more viewpoints in. you can leave a comment on our c-span page on facebook. here is one -- host: pat, for the duck, california. caller: i believe that he is trying to do everything that he can for the country. mitch mcconnell and all of the rest of the republicans, they need to sit down and try to work together. which president obama has tried to do for some time. it is to the point now where he is a little frustrated. peopl

'connor upheld an affirmative action program for the university of michigan as said it was appropriate to take race into account. if you do it any way that is personal that isa quota and do other stuff so no court can figure out what your doing. it is so if you may get -- so it is individualized, so nobody has a smoking gun that race was the actual fact, then you can do it. people in universities, shockingly, are able to do these things. i don't think as long as that is the rule, the supreme court will be interested in coming back to that issue so soon. what makes the case more interesting is in the interim, while affirmative action had been thrown out by the fifth circuit in the 1990's, the texas legislature, i think at the behest of the elite republican who i am sure is very close to everybody here, passed a statute that said in order to increase the amount of minority students in texas public education, there was going to be a guaranteed 10% for the top 10 at each high school, would be entitled to go into one of the university's in the system. the question that is somewhat more interesting
